Honors Program

Through interdisciplinary coursework and events, the College’s Honors Program helps you broaden your academic horizons.

The overarching goal of the Honors Program is to help you explore your major within a larger context. The program stresses research and communication skills, as well as being a contributing member of a community.

Benefits of the program include:

  • Option to register for classes before the rest of the campus.
  • Playing a lead role in the publication of The Review, the College's undergraduate research journal.
  • Receiving $3,000 annually in scholarship money.
  • Taking part in a wide variety of on- and off-campus learning experiences, including national and international travel.
  • A seat on the steering committee that determines the program's curriculum and policies.

Program Overview

As an Honors candidate, you will complete six honors courses, including Honors 100. Of the remaining classes in the program, at least one must be at the 300 level, requiring high standards for research and academic professionalism.

The successful completion of program requirements may be capped with a senior project linked to your major, as approved by the program director.

If you are a transfer student admitted to the program, the number of honors courses you are required to take will be determined by the number of semesters remaining in order for you to graduate from Fisher.
